Capturing Poses at the Break of Dawn (NSFW)

Jordan Matter captures the lithe, muscular, and naked bodies of dancers in empty urban streets at the break of dawn and even at busy locales in the dark of the night for the series ‘Dancers After Dark.’ Influenced by the works of Henri Cartier-Bresson, considered by many as the father of photojournalism, the New York Times bestselling author and photographer aims to capture people in an intimate manner to show their true essence and personality. Outstretched bodies held in balanced poses and suspended from different apparatuses, Matter beautifully captures the passion and dedication each dancer has given for their art.
